My take on why best friends make the best lovers!
By Cecilia Robert
To have your long time best buddy as your lover has some perks to it. Once the friends hop over from the friend zone and into the lovers zone seamlessly –probably there was a problem or two, or a various hurdles to overcome while racing to the finishing line – they begin to see the advantages of such a relationship.
The two have been together for ages. When she moves, so does he, trying to adjust or align himself/herself so they can be on the same track. Like a satellite. The good thing is he will know when to stop aligning himself and give you some space.
They know each other at a far more deeper level , than, say if one of them is in a new relationship.
You know you are in love with your best friend when:
- A touch from your best friend that has always been just that, is now ‘The touch of all touches’, even if it’s just a brush of fingers. In my upcoming contemporary romance Truly, Madly, Deeply, You, that’s how Frey feels when Liese innocently touches him, as any best friend would.
- When you tunelessly sing or shriek on top of your voice Kiss’ I was born for loving you baby.. and meaning the words from the bottom of your heart, or singing along to Josh Groban’s You Are Still You – or any other song, with lyrics that make your toes curl - while wailing helplessly.
- When she/he suddenly takes on your own version of Aishriwaya Rai, or Clark Kent (I mean the Tom Welling version, with green/hazel eyes and hard in all the right places.)
- Every time her/his name passes through your lips a shiver dances along your spine
